We came here a couple hours before a big concert at the VanAndel arena. We had six of us and we were told it would be about a 45 minute wait. The whole place was packed and a lot of people were on a wait but things seemed to move quickly. The wait was much shorter than anticipated and we had an excellent waiter. We got our food orders in right away and everything came out very quickly. The food was decent although a little overpriced for what you get. The service was excellent and the entire staff was very nice.

I was in town for a conference recently that had about 3,000 high school kids in town. Most restaurants were busy but we were able to get into Bobarino's with our large group of 20. Our server, and server-in-training handled our big group with no problems. All dishes were received as ordered, at the same time, and hot! The food was fantastic. Some got pizza, and many (like myself) mac-n-cheese. My buffalo mac was awesome and I highly recommend it. Everything else looked great to me. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

The atmosphere of The B.O.B building is awesome! We have had drinks here before and they are always good and its a cool place to hang out. We went on a saturday around 8 and it was packed in Bobarino’s which is totally understandable. There was a live band which was actually good and the pizza was bomb but the waitresses seemed more concerned with their huge table of 20 then with our group of 4. Plus they were running out of stuff which really put me off. Also their brownie goblet is a joke. That brownie had almost no flavor. Change up the recipe.

Thank you for the review, it is appreciated. We are super glad you enjoyed the live band, we have one every Friday and Saturday starting at 9. Our wood fired pizza is delicious. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your desert, and that your server was distracted. If you would like to elaborate on the situation you can send our GM Lisa an email (Lcoellela@gilmorec.com}. Thank you again and hope to see you soon.

We decided to meet the group here for some pre-show drinks and apps. We were attending and show at Dr. Grins and didn't know they actually serve some of the same apps during the show. Around the table there was 2 beers, a sangria, and my mixed drink. We ordered the Cheese bread and the ham & cheese rolls. The Cheese bread is my favorite, the marinara sauce is great with whole chunks of garlic. The drinks were good all around and the apps went down quickly. Great service!
